If you watched the Houston Texans visit Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis on Sunday to challenge the Colts, there is no need to explain to “winning ugly” means. If you arose much earlier in the day to tune in the final day of the Ryder Cup matches from a place in France that I can neither re…

If you do not already have a FedEx delivery manager profile, consider getting one before your next vacation — especially if you have a wine delivery already in transit and just discovered you won’t be home to sign for the package.

Questions proffered by the rock duo Zager and Evans in their 1969 hit “In The Year 2525” have been answered as that year arrives: not only is man still alive; he (and she) still plays golf, arms and legs having not been rendered useless.

To all who insist that Tiger Woods, age 42, is “washed up,” you are now, as Dusty Springfield sang in 1964: “Wishin’ and hopin’ and thinkin’ and prayin.’” Period. The man can still compete at the highest level of the game. Period.

I found it a useful coincidence that on the same day Daily News publisher Leonard Woolsey wrote about recognizing (sort of) one’s physical limitations due to, well, aging and the need to perhaps try to make lifestyle adjustments, Gerry Watson won his 12th PGA Tour event.

It is not likely that any professional golfer will ever even come close to having a season like that of Byron Nelson back in 1945, when he won 11 consecutive tournaments. Tiger Woods won seven consecutive starts in 2006-2007; Woods and Ben Hogan each had years when they won six consecutive events.

“June Is Bustin’ Out All Over” is a line from a song by the same name in the 1945 musical “Carousel.” At Shinnecock Hills Golf Club — about 90 miles east of New York City, where today the forecast high temperature is a ridiculous 70-something degrees — June is bustin’ out with the 118th U.S.…
